A jersey worn and signed by Michael Jordan recently sold for a whopping $216,000 at auction. Bidding for the memorabilia just so happened to come to a close this past Sunday, the same day ESPN's 10-part Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, premiered.

The jersey was worn by MJ during the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona when the United States men's basketball team, nicknamed the "Dream Team," won the gold medal. Jordan signed the uniform "Best wishes/Michael Jordan," as it originally sold for $17,500 at a charity event held by The Michael Jordan Foundation in September of 1992.

The auction hosted by memorabilia company Robert Edward Auctions began earlier this month on April 3 with a starting bid of $25,000. According to CNN, there were 54 bids in total during the auction. The selling price of $216,000 accounts for the second-highest auction price for a Jordan jersey.

It's been more than 17 years since Michael Jordan played in an NBA game, but there is renewed hype surrounding the basketball icon largely due to ESPN's newly-premiered documentary, The Last Dance. You can watch the miniseries on Sundays throughout April and May on ESPN.
